Improving Literacy in Scoil Dara

English & Art / Word of the week

Last week’s ‘Word of the Week’ chalk display did not require any cajoling. Our fabulous student Anita Egei in 5th Year offered her time in producing a eye catching display to capture the school community’s attention as they walk through the corridors.

During an interesting conversation around King Lear’s reactions to his daughters’ treatment of him in Act 2 Scene 4 we stumbled across the Word ‘flabbergast’ Thank you Julia Robaczynska in 5f for the fabulous display. Anyone flabbergasted this week yet?

And  thanks goes to another 5th year student, Muireann Ní Fhaogáin Kelly for giving her time to display the word so beautiful.
